We find in Wallieh's Catalogue two barbarous names for this plant, one being
Roxburgh's manuscript name, the other that of Hamilton, As neither has been
poWs&ed, and we'cannot tell which ought to have the preference, we have adopted
mei&er, gladly availing ourselves of any legitimate excuse for escaping the employ-
ment of such extremely local and probably quite erroneous names.

With the stamens of Saecopetalwtii, this genus has the petals equal in size, or
nearly so, the outer being usually somewhat larger. The general appearance is very-
distinct from that of Saccopetalum, the leaves being very thick and coriaceous, and
quite glabrous, except when very young. We are happy to have this opportunity of
associating the name of M, Alphonse De Candolle with an Order which he has so'ally
investigated, 4y dedicating to him this very distinct genus.
